The GS4 nor the HTCone didn't even exist in October of last year when i purchased the I5. Not to mention the HTCone still not being available on VZW. I was not going to spend money on another Sammy phone so that meant the SGS3 was not an option either.
Weren't both the GNex and Nex4 $299 with no contract? Sold on the Google website without a contract?
edit: I wasn't looking to be argumentative, just pointing out newer phones should perform better.
